Planning Your Soccer Tour

Selecting A Tour Company

  • Your key decision is which Tour Operator to choose to arrange the tour. Cost is a factor, but not the critical one. Tour Value is far more important than Tour Cost.
  • Verify that the Company is not just a competent Tour Operator, but can guarantee the very specialist content for your specific tour. Many people can take you to Rome, but can they organise Friendly Games for a very strong Under 14 Girls team, for example?
  • We have over 30 years in this specialist sector of Soccer Travel, our home is in Europe, and we have excellent contacts in each country to ensure perfect arrangements and a great experience.
  • Contacting Group Leaders who have already travelled with a Company is a good way of checking their competence and reliability. Legacy will provide a bona-fide list of recent group leaders.
  • Although soccer is the original reason to travel, education is important too – for both the young people and the adults. Legacy tours offer high quality with creative educational and cultural content, and top-class Tour Directors.
Getting Your Group Together

  • Regular meetings of parents & players are important, but also time-consuming. So, establish a small and dynamic Trip Committee to do most of the planning – with specific functions like Secretary, Treasurer, Fund-Raising, Coach and Contact Person who liaises with the Tour Company.
  • Establish key decisions at an early date by having several Group Meetings – decide your best Travel Dates, maximum Tour Budget, Tour Preferences and ensure that everyone is happy with these decisions – especially the Tour Costs. You are then able to proceed with detailed Tour Planning.
  • Publicise the key Payment Dates and collect early Tour Deposits – this will establish exactly who intends to go and who does not.
  • Fund-Raising is an important subject, so establish your policy early, to maximize income. Ensure everyone knows all about the Legacy Online Draw, which can raise up to $3,000 each.
  • Establish a Tour Bank Account, to receive the group members’ payments & transfer funds.
  • Obtain all your parents’ e-mail numbers, so that you can communicate quickly, and in writing, and also send attachments concerning the Tour Itinerary, Useful Websites, Insurance and Tour Up-Dates.
Decide Which Tour Is For You
  • Dates:

    Decide which dates suit your own commitments and availability. For example, check on the dates of School Vacations , Regionals and other local factors.
  • Plan Well Ahead:

    Allow enough lead-in time to plan your tour and raise funds: plan 12 to 18 months ahead.
  • Tour Type

    Do you prefer a Tournament Tour or a Friendship Tour? Remember, most International Tournaments are in summer, with a few at Easter. Winter, Spring Break and Easter Tours are less expensive, and Pro Games are in full swing across Europe, so a Friendship Tour is best for the winter months.
  • Tour Costs

    Decide your maximum Tour Budget at the outset. This will help decide which tours are possible. Be realistic and ensure you all agree. Be ambitious also – all our groups benefit from our Free Fund-Raiser, and can raise up to $3,000 per player!
  • Customize a Tour

    Remember, we can tailor any tour to suit your own criteria concerning things like Tour Dates, Budget, Inclusions or Destinations.
  • Destinations

    Europe is the home of soccer and provides a fabulous choice of destinations for sightseeing & cultural attractions as well as world-class soccer experiences.
Making A Tour Enquiry
  • Elect a Tour Contact person, who is a good e-mailer, to communicate on behalf of the group.
  • Once you have decided your main criteria – Dates, Duration, Type of Tour and Tour Budget – go to “Contact Us” (see top right of page), and complete the E-Enquiry Form. Try to be as detailed as possible with regard to your Team, the Group Size, Tour Dates and Choices.
  • We will then forward specific details on your Tour Choices for you to present to your group members and parents, leading eventually to a firm Tour Proposal & Costs.
  • Now, have a Group Meeting to reach an early decision on your tour choice. Early booking is always very helpful – this allows maximum time for fund-raising and best choice of flights and hotels.
